Girl's basketball has been around at Cary High School dating back to the 1940's. However, it wasn't until the 1972 season that girl's were allowed to compete for a championship thanks in large part to the passing of the Title IX legislation. Girl's basketball teams at Cary High have enjoyed plenty of success on the basketball court, including a state championship in 1993 under then head coach Debbie Edwards.
Our two most famous alum are Debbie Antonelli (Class of 1982), a national college/WNBA basketball analyst & co-host of ESPN women's basketball podcast and Azura Stevens (Class of 2014), the #6 Pick in the 2018 WNBA Draft of the Dallas Wings.
